High-Dimensional Visualizations

  title={High-Dimensional Visualizations},
  author={Georges G. Grinstein and Marjan Trutschl and Urska Cvek},
In this paper we provide a brief background to data visualization and point to key references. We differentiate between highdimensional data visualization and high-dimensional data visualizations and review the various high-dimensional visualization techniques. Our goal is to define metrics that identify how visualizations deal with n dimensions when displayed on the screen. We define intrinsic dimensionality metrics that assess these techniques and closely analyze selected high-dimensional… 

A new variant of radial visualization for supervised visualization of high dimensional data

A new variant of Radial Visualization for visualizing high dimensional data set that named Arc Radial visualization is introduced and the effectiveness of the approach for several real datasets is proved.

Arrangement of Low-Dimensional Parallel Coordinate Plots for High-Dimensional Data Visualization

This paper presents a framework for displaying an arrangement of low-dimensional data visualization spaces that are generated from high-dimensional datasets using parallel coordinate plots, and presents several results demonstrating its effectiveness.

Improved N-dimensional data visualization from hyper-radial values

This research adapts and extends hyper-radial visualization, a technique used to visualize Pareto fronts in multi-objective optimizations, to become an n-dimensional visualization tool.

A framework for the visualization of multidimensional and multivariate data

This framework is based on the reduction approach, which is realized through a filtering process that allows extraction of data subject to constraints on their position or value within an n-dimensional window, and on choice of dimensions for display.

Hi-D Maps: An Interactive Visualization Technique for Multi-Dimensional Categorical Data

Hi-D maps are presented, a novel method for the visualization of multi-dimensional categorical data that addresses the scarcity of techniques for visualizing a large number of data-dimensions in an effective and space-efficient manner.

Visualization Tree, Multiple Linked Analytical Decisions

This approach proposes an innovative and interactive systematization that can augment the potential for data presentation by utilizing multiple views that are kept linked according to the analytical decisions took by the user and tracked in a tree-like structure.

Scatterplot layout for high-dimensional data visualization

This paper presents algorithms to place the scatterplots by the combination of ideal position calculation and rectangle packing algorithms, and two examples demonstrating the effectiveness of the presented technique.

Hypervariate Data Visualization

This paper gives an overview of six representative techniques for rendering hypervariate data and an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of each technique is given.

Flexible Linked Axes for Multivariate Data Visualization

This work explores how to give the user more freedom to define visualizations, based on the usage of Flexible Linked Axes, and allows users to define composite visualizations that automatically support brushing and linking.

A New Pixel-Oriented Visualization Technique Through Color Image

This paper suggests using this medium (color image) to summarize multidimensional data and thus to turn a data set into a meaningful insight to obtain a new unsupervised visualization technique through color images.

VisDB: database exploration using multidimensional visualization

Discusses how the VisDB system supports the query specification process by representing the result visually by arranging pixels to indicate the item's relevance to a user query and to give a visual impression of the resulting data set.

Graphical Methods for Data Analysis

This paper presents a meta-modelling framework for developing and assessing regression models for multivariate and multi-dimensional data distributions and describes the distribution of a set of data.


SUMMARY A method of plotting data of more than two dimensions is proposed. Each data point, x = (xi, * , xk), is mapped into a function of the form fx(t) = xl/ v/2 + x2 sin t + x3 cos t + X4 sin 2t +

Laying out and visualizing large trees using a hyperbolic space

The essence of the approach is to lay out the hierarchy uniformly on the hyperbolic plane and map this plane onto a circular display region and projection onto the disk provides a natural mechanism for assigning more space to a portion of the hierarchy while still embedding it in a much larger context.
